Cross The Line (Project One HKP-103) 1979




Hollen, David - Cross The Line







Light-to-mid-rocking guy who’s custom album includes assistance from Michael Albrecht, Scott Roley and Alan Moore (i.e., Albrecht, Roley & Moore). Similar mellow “adult rock” sound to some of Albrecht, Roley & Moore’s stuff, especially bright cruisin’—along tunes like the title track and a cover of AR&M’s ‘Eyes On The Clouds’. The combination of electric piano and electric guitar often strikes up a pleasant easygoing jazz-rock groove, as on ‘Let It Flow’, ‘This Could Be The Day’ and ‘Never Be The Same’. John Hardy adds some fine electric guitar soloing to several tracks. Also appearances of saxophone, violin and female backing vocals. David’s on acoustic guitar and lead vocals. Well produced without being excessively smooth. Other participants include Monty Matthews and Petra’s drummer Louis Weaver. On the Project One label (same as Frank Sterns’ On Down The Line), a division of Holy Kiss Records. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
